I was short on time so I booked the standard 2 day tour of Colca Canyon with a tour agency right off the main plaza. For 60 soles, we got a night loding in Chivay and a tour bus/guide for 2 days. I did have to pay for my own tourist ticket (35 soles) at a checkpoint right outside the town of Chivay. During the 2 days, we stopped at many points along the way to take pictures of the mountains, saw the vicunas (similar to alpacas), and saw the condors soaring above the canyon at Cruz del condor. Both days the tour bus stopped at a restaurant where they had a buffet lunch set up for us but for 20 soles/person. The food was good and we were kind of stuck doing it but it was a bit pricey for a meal in Peru of this quality (and annoying that we really had no choice since the bus stopped at this restaurant outside of town one day with no other places to eat in sight).
